Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's romantic relationship may have just become even stronger, bolstered by a very memorable family event that they apparently shared together: The birth of Kourtney Kardashian's baby, Penelope Scotland Disick. She's the second child and first girl for Kourtney and her partner, Scott Disick, and auntie Kim is no doubt as pleased as punch to have a little niece to spoil--and to dress to the nines in the cutest (and choicest) clothes available.
But will Mr. West be Penelope's uncle?
While that's still to be determined, it seems that all this excitement has stirred up a bit of fever for the rapper--and not of the Bieber sort, but of the baby variety. Kim Kardashian has already been the center of some of those ubiquitous pregnancy rumors--false, of course--that follow many starlets around, including Kim's sister, Khloe. That aside, according to a source close to Kanye West, the reality TV show diva's mom-to-be status might come sooner rather than later.
"It's probably putting baby ideas in [West's] head," said an insider in reference to Kourtney Kardashian's new little one and also that drama surrounding Kim's ex, Kris Humphries, and his fling, Myla Sinanaj, who was rumored to be pregnant, then who promptly denied the claims.
As Hollywood Life reports, the source also said of West's feelings about his main girl's new niece, "Of course Kanye's excited man, he's part of the family now, kinda. He was with Kim when Kourtney had her baby... He's really happy for Kourtney, and I know he gon' help and do something outlandish for her new baby."
Whether he's ready to become a dad again with Kim Kardashian or not, one thing seems certain: This hardcore rapper really does have a softer side!
